Thank you to all the parents for sending us great activities all Skinner families can enjoy. We initially intended to send out information about Art events in Chicago once a month, but we are able to send out fun events weekly!
Here are the events Skinner families enjoy in the upcoming weeks in our segment “Keep Calm and Make Art”. Hope you can join us!
